Terry Buckalew will discuss the Bethel Burying Ground from its establishment in 1810 to its archeological discovery in 2013 to its present day status as an important part of Philadelphia and national African American history.

This free lecture will take place in the church sanctuary, followed by a reception in Riverside Hall with live piano music provided by The Jazz Sanctuary. For a modest donation, enjoy gourmet cheesecake by a local pastry chef paired with moscato wine.
